Succeed In Life……………

Key To Success

 

 

Succeed in life!!  Quite obviously a larger than life statement.  This is not meant to be a thinking outside the box situation but rather to have you think about what it is that you need to think about when you are attempting to understand your roll in your own life situation.

 

Why do so many people utterly fail in life.  We can blame the schools, our family our surrounds or even our plight of where we might have been born and raised.

 

I am not trying in this short post to define, explain and possibly solve the problems of the world, as this would surely be outside of my scope or even my abilities and I am sure this would be outside of most anyone’s single scope or undertaking.  Rather I am trying to have a quick look at what might be a short insight into some of our own thoughts and ideas.

 

We have, in the free world,  some of the best institutions of higher learning in the world, yet there seems to be a lacking in our education and it relationship to the workplaces.  In other words, people are not able to implement what they have learned and apply it to the workplace.

 

The problem seems to be a difficulty in people learning to relate to each other and then take this a step further and learn to get excited about a project and work at it until it is done or completed.

 

How do we relate to each other?  Are we more concerned about what we can do for ourselves rather then what we can do for our neighbors (and this means far more than the scope of your immediate neighbors in your neighborhood).

 

It is quite evident, in many cases, that we don’t get along world wide, we don’t agree with many things and it seems we only care what is in it for us,  in many countries throughout the world, rather than looking at the world as a whole.

 

The problem seems to be that we were never really taught in school or in family settings what we needed to do or needed to be to get along with other people.  Just look at the confrontations throughout the world right at this very moment.

We don’t understand people and we don’t take the time to try to understand these people, so we go about things in a very protective manner.

The question might be asked, how can we start to get along throughout the world?  How can we work towards a harmony that could exist?  Many people feel that this will never happen, that it is far too much outside the scope of our thought process to have it even begin.  Also might this be too idealistic to even begin?

Whoever thought that we would have more memory on our cell phones than we had on our first computers or that our mobile devices will outsell our computers and have more memory?  But I also realize that human interaction and human relationships might have the ability to proceed in a good manner, if we can perceive it. A different league, possibly, but it shouldn’t be outside of our thought processes if we ever hope to attain it.

It is not my intention to even try to answer these questions but rather to bring it to the table for some discussions, some thoughts and ideas that might penetrate our minds to come up with some pertinent solutions, if there are any.

    Empathy can and should be taught. While not everyone is naturally empathetic, and people have different degrees of it, if the collective average shot up, the world would be a better place.

      No question Brad that this world would be a better place with more empathy. I have often wondered how this might be taught in the homes and schools. Unfortunately too many times the home expects the school to do all the teaching and that just ain’t going to happen. I do realize that when things occur in the home, that the ability to teach at the schools becomes more constructive.

  2. Empathy requires presence…and subjugating your own immediate needs in service to another. That’s not an easy thing to do. Those who can become valuable to the marketplace…and at peace with themselves. Great post, John!

    I have often thought that we are born with the need for what’s in it for me and then when the family environment kicks in, then the child becomes either attentive to empathy or doesn’t care out of self preservation. As I said to Brad, too many times the home expects the teachings to be done at school and in reality it should be mostly be done at home, but obviously this isn’t always the case. This is why I love the story of Dr. Ben Carson whose mother had an amazing influence on both he and his brother. She had them read books each week and then do a book report after she realized that were laughing about school. The amazing thing is that she could not read or write herself but still had such influence on their successes.

  4. I’m going to guess that the reason so many people utterly fail in life is because our population is exploding much faster than our evolution is evolving. We’ve learned to stay alive longer but not necessarily smarter and this creates a deficit that most are not aware of and even fewer are equipped to deal with. While it is well beyond my scope (or anyone’s) to save the world, I do agree with Brad that the collective average matters. Therefore, what I do matters, and what you do matters. The influence we have on others matters and, ultimately, this is the root of all change and forward progress in human evolution. If you succeed you break even, and if you help one other person succeed you come out ahead.
    Great post!

  5. Great post John… Empathy is somewhere where I could improve greatly.
